Doctors pleaded with the family who are Jehovah’s witnesses for blood transfusion in order for the mother to undergo dialysis procedure.
From Saturday morning, Soko’s family were locked up in tight decision making meeting over transfusion. Unfortunately Soko’s family could not settle for transfusion despite the mother being in critical condition by noon. Cfb had already prepared blood drips.
The mother died few minutes afterwards around 4pm.
Mr Soko who appeared drunk chased all the nurses in the ward.He threw hospital tables. Dr Witu cfb doctor failed to cool him down.
Hospital security guards who were called in were badly beaten by Mr Soko.
FSG funeral service drivers who came to pick up the body were equally beaten  by Mr Soko.Transit casket from fsg funeral was broken by Soko despite having a  body of his mother in it.
Soko called in RATSA patrol officers who brought hospital to the halt with both local and foreign nation patients watching in disarray in gowns and drips.
FSG directors were called in by irrate Soko before the fsg drivers were bundled in RATSA vehicles.
Soko spinned his vehicle at hospital premise before speeding off.
Patients in ICU were terrified by Soko’s behaviour.
FSG and hospital guards were left with torn clothes.

Dr Witu the doctor who was on call has promised that the hospital will launch a complaint over Soko’s behaviour.
